After two very successful hackathons in 2021 and 2022, VERSO International School is hosting its third hackathon, VERSO HACK 2023 for all students ages 13 to 18.
VERSO HACK is a guided hackathon where participants work with their peers to gain fundamental tech skills and entrepreneurial thinking skills, and meet other aspiring student entrepreneurs and tech enthusiasts while using their creative problem-solving skills to solve a real-world challenge
VERSO has once again partnered with Reactor School, Singapore’s leading startup school for student entrepreneurs in Southeast Asia, to ensure that VERSO HACK 2023 is built on the best hackathon model in Southeast Asia.
During the hackathon, students are given a challenge or business problem to work on and develop either a new solution or technology for that challenge within 2 days.
The event includes experiential workshops and activities where students learn about designing solutions, validating ideas, prototyping, and pitching – the same skills that the best entrepreneurs in the world have – and are mentored and coached by experts from the startup and tech community.
